Gracie is an outstanding mare with both classic and feminine looks and phenomenal movements. She is very well balanced physically, mentally and emotionally. She knows success exists and seeks it out to please her rider.
Gracie was started a bit late in life then put into training to give her a very solid foundation and to help her mature. She quickly revealed her “trainability” and began doing quite well. She remained in a casual training environment in which she was ridden by riders of various skill levels from trainers and assistants and from interns to students. She performed well for all.
Gracie was sent home for a break which extended to over two years of no riding (life happens). When brought back into work it was as if she hadn’t missed a day. Apart from not being in top condition she performed marvelously.
Gracie has a classic and beautiful trot. She is athletic and balanced enough to do great lateral maneuvers and with limited exposure to such is doing unbelievably well. Her next high point would be her transitions. Because of her lightness on the bit and her balanced carriage both her upward and downward transitions are amazing and will still get better.
Gracie is sound in every way and is mature and ready yet youthful enough to push into intense training toward hunt seat, dressage and perhaps even eventing.
At 16hh and with a beautiful classically English brown color, being trainable and athletic she is an ideal prospect for riders at various levels. Absolutely no known vices.
For anyone wishing to have her talents developed further to your liking Van Hargis Horsemanship will offer one month of continued training free on a 3 month program.
